From tapes You can make a large number of different colors. For example, the place will be classic roses or peonies, multicolored gerberas, fluffy chrysanthemums and asters or laconic hyacinths. There are many different techniques for the manufacture of wedding bouquets from ribbons.
Kanzashi. To date, the bouquets in the style of Kanzashi are the most popular option for the wedding. This technique came from the East – in Japan, decorated with hairstyles of noble women. Petals of these artificial flowers are so accustomed that they want to touch them and consider each detail of the bouquet separately.
The technique itself is not too complicated, and even a beginner will be able to cope with it, but this work is long and very painstaking. Each petal is made of a separate piece of ribbon and only after all the petals are ready, you can collect one flower. The edges of the petals can be both sharp and elongated and rounded and even expanding to the ends.
Flat flowers. Such tape roses are perfect for a bouquet of topiary on a long thin leg. They are performed from a long whole ribbon, rolled in a certain way and nasty on a small substrate from burlap, soft felt or even cardboard. Such compositions from ribbons of pastel shades look very gently and touching in the hands of the bride.
Lush flowers. Magnificent flowers without individual petals can be made using one ribbon and needle threads. To do this, it is enough to fold the satin tissue along and flash it with long stitches around the edge. After that, you need to carefully pull the free edge of the thread, collecting tape with beautiful swans and spinning a spiral. For greater structures, you can twist the tape along the axis – it will give the flower a greater density and create a unique pattern.
Melted petals. The bouquets of peonies, collected with the help of melted pieces of satin ribbon. You can do this as a conventional lighter and a flame of a candle or a gas stove. Finished petals are collected in a tight or blossomed bout and connect to one big composition. With a certain skill, artificial bouquets can be collected, which, even from the distance of two steps, do not distinguish between the present. In this case, such a bouquet can stand in a vase for two days, and several years.
Flowers of thin ribbons. From thin tapes whose width does not exceed centimeters, you can make lush chrysanthemums or asters. To do this, it is enough to wind a long ribbon on the fingers of the palm, to tie in the middle with a small thread or rope and cut the loop with scissors. A fluffy ball, pressed on the sides of the same neighbors, externally looks very similar to the garden flowers growing on the cottages and in the gods. With a competent color combination with roses or peonies from large ribbons, even such simple bouquets will become a cute decoration of the celebration.
Color and texture
In order for a bouquet of artificial flowers to fit in a celebration format, it is necessary to choose the right color and size of buds. And for a bouquet to approach the dress of the bride, it is necessary to take into account his texture. Than air and lighter outfit, the more gentle and miniature should be bouquet flowers.
An excellent solution will be executed in the shade of dresses or decorative elements. If you want to make brightness in a monochrome outfit, then you need to pick up the tapes of the same color as the design of the whole event. Most often, 2-3 shades are chosen, in which the decor of the hall is performed and the tables are decorated. If the color solution of the bouquet will coincide with them, then the whole composition will look more completed and thoughtful.
Most often for decoration of weddings, pastel and tender tones are used. Solorate, as usual, white and all his shades. Dilutes the composition blue, pink, lavender and pistachio.

If the bride’s dress and hair sparkle with pearls and stones, you should not decorate them and a bouquet – it will look prefigured and overloaded. On the contrary, the laconic image will well emphasize flowers with rhinestones and broots. In addition, wedding stylists advise to leave the elongated forms of bouquet for girls, and ladies at the age of stop their choice on a spherical shape.

It is best to do it at the desk or stand, so that you can leave the unfinished bouquet and return to its assembly a little later.
Before you start making a satin bouquet, you should study several master classes for the technique that was chosen, and take the flowers to do. All the rest of the work will not take much time and is performed in stages according to a small instruction.
